The Horton Award annual competition is competitive and celebrates exemplary menus in campus dining services. This is the second Horton award that Mick & Mack’s has won since opening in 2004.

Think Thursdays Spotlight featured Mick & Mack's specialty events themed Think Thursdays and its growing attendance.

Brian Scott, a Vintner Select wine importer, works with the 5 UC Chefs to plan the menu. Scott says he's been able to watch the events go from 30 people to a full house. John Hautz, UC's Dirctor of Food Service, decribes how the Think Thursdays started as a chance to showcase UC's culinary team.
